Chicago Hornet Treatment


Hornet

How To Identify A Hornet Infestation

Appearance - Hornets are often confused for bees but are actually a type of wasp. Bald faced hornets look similar to yellow jackets, but with large with white markings on their heads. European hornets are red/brown in color.

Behavior - The easiest way to identify a hornet problem is by finding a hornet nest along with a swarm of hornets around them. Hornet nests are made from wood which is chewed into a pulp. They are papery in appearance. It is common to see hornets building their new nests in the spring.

Why You Might Have Hornets

Hornets need a place to build their nests. Awnings, window sills, gutters, or any other piece of property that can give them a ledge to build off of can be a place to establish a hive. If your Chicago residence has any of these available to hornets, then you may be at risk for a hornet problem.

Beyond just homes, hornets also find new living space in trees. Because their nests are made of a combination of hornet saliva and wood fibers, this is the perfect place to find a home. By that point hornet control by a professional is necessary.

Reasons To Treat Your Hornet Problem Immediately

Hornet stings are painful and dangerous. The worker hornets will aggressively defend their homes. Hornets do not die after a sting like bees do, so they can continuously sting you and cause damage or even fatalities if too many attacks you or your family. Additionally, hornets can release an attack pheromone which can trigger other hornets to attack. If allergic, a sting can be you into anaphylactic shock, which is a life-threatening situation. Chicago hornet removal is the step you must take to regain safety around your home and yard.

    First we identify and target the source of your Hornet problem with our custom treatment.
  • Inside Treatment
    We then treat unfinished basements, garages, crawl spaces, trash areas, attics; wherever there is the possibility for a pest to enter your home or make residence, we will create a barrier to protect you. We deploy a variety of techniques depending on what works best for your situation.

What Our Customers Say


Pleasant, knowledgeable and efficient! Thank you


October 8th, 2017

So far I have not seen very many ants around my house and the ones I have seen are not moving very fast. I still see ants in my yard around my pool not sure if the area was treated.

Friendly and knowledgeable.
